Today is International Women's Day, when the world celebrates female empowerment and highlights the continued need for equality both at home and professionally. The creative industries, from illustration to 3D, are full of boundary-breaking, talented women who are pushing new levels of creativity. We've decided to shine the spotlight on five of them right here.

These incredible designers and artists all recently gave talks at the 2D and 3D art conference, Vertex. They shared art, design and career advice to help others learn and succeed within the industry – valuable insights if you consider the success these professionals have enjoyed. (Remember to try the best digital art software and 3D modelling software for success of your own.)
